The one Tarantino movie that does apply to this list is Jackie Brown, and it is a pitch perfect imrovement of the Leonard oeuvre.

********* Tarantino is a valid subject on the list. He has done movies adaptations of hardboiled/noir novels. I don't know why you think that Reservoir Dogs doesn't qualify.

And as far as politics goes, it is rare that a hardboiled or noir novel doesn't pose social questions that extrapolate out to the political. For you to somehow think that these issues are verboten is to deny a significant aspect of literary discussion. I don't buy that.
